obama has not even nominated former senator chuck hagel as his choice for secretary of defense, but haggle taking heat over his past positions on iran and 2007 interview when he said "jewish loe lobby intimidated lawmakers." >> i would have serious questions to ask him, not just about israel, but to me the most significant foreign policy challenge for president obama and our world is iran. nuclear weapons program. chuck hagel has had some very outlying votes on that. >> i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i really didn't know all of them, frankly well out of the main street and to left of the president. >> he is the subject of a new ad opposing his nomination as defense secretary. dana, what do you think? he might not sail through like john kerry. is he going to get the votes you think? >> i think the question is whether or not he is even going to get the nomination given the comments he made. the senate is a club, and they like to give props to the club. senator haggle was not one of the most popular members of the club and t
